How to make porridge on the water

Oatmeal cooked in water is significantly lower in calories compared to oatmeal cooked in milk. That is why this method of cooking oatmeal is suitable for people suffering from diabetes and wishing to lose weight.

If you prefer porridge with a softer consistency, then before cooking you should soak the cereal in cold water (for 10-15 minutes).

After that, one glass of oatmeal should be poured with one glass of water, put on medium heat and boil until the water boils.

Porridge can be eaten in both sweet and salty form - it all depends on your personal taste preferences. In addition to sugar, porridge can be sweetened with condensed milk, jam, honey or jam.

Serve the dish should be hot or warm, as the cold porridge quickly loses its attractive taste.

How to diversify the taste of oatmeal cooked on water

Since porridge cooked in water will be much easier to your taste than porridge cooked in milk, it can be varied with the help of other products.

So, exotic fruits (pineapple, kiwi, banana, mango and others) are perfectly combined with water-based porridge. All these components can be mixed together or use each fruit separately. More budget options for flavoring are fruits such as apple, pear and peach. Since apple and pear are hard enough fruits, it is better to pre-steam them so that they become softer, while the peach can be put in fresh porridge.

You can also diversify the taste of oatmeal using chopped nuts (cashews, peanuts, almonds, pine nuts or walnuts). However, it should be borne in mind that even a small handful of nuts significantly increases the calorie content of the dish.

Oatmeal cooked in water will become more tasty and appetizing if you add dried apricots, raisins, prunes, candied fruits or dried dates. When using dried fruits, the amount of sugar added to the porridge should be halved, otherwise the dish will be too sweet.

Another unusual way to diversify the taste of oatmeal is to add chopped salted cracker or sweet crackers to the dish. It is better to chop them up 2-3 minutes before serving porridge on the table, so that they have time to soften. By adding flour products the calorie content of such porridge is slightly increased.

Oatmeal on water will be much tastier and healthier if you add to it fresh or frozen berries (blueberries, strawberries, strawberries, cherries, currants, etc.).

As you can see, there are many ways to make delicious porridge on the water.
